Major Nelson: External Game Storage “Coming Soon;” “Lots Of Work” Going On To Make Xbox One “Even Better”

By -

Microsoft’s Major Nelson has confirmed that external game storage for Xbox One is “coming soon”. He also talked about how there is a lot of good work going behind the scene for the Xbox One.

In a thread on reddit, he replied to some of the demands of the fans, ensuring them that Microsoft is committed to bringing new and exciting things for the Xbox One.

Lot’s of good work going on to make the console even better – some you’ll see soon, some will show up later. But: it is all good stuff : )

He was asked to confirm support for external storage, especially for media. While he didn’t really confirm it for media, he did say that external game storage will be coming soon.

External game storage is coming soon….I need to check on media support.

He was also asked about integrating Kinect to use for the purpose of security, detecting if there is a potential threat, and alerting the users. According to him, there are multiple reasons why this is not a good idea, also debunking the myth that Kinect is always watching its users.

There are a TON of issues w/ this..#1 being privacy. Some people (incorrectly) think Kinect is always watching them.

What do you think about the remarks made by Major Nelson? Let us know in the comments below.

    Please Larry ‘Major D-Bag’ Nelson do the world of gaming and the world in general a favor and take a page out of Adam Sessler’s book and just shut up and go away, you are a blight on the gaming world, nothing would go further for improving gaming and the media that surrounds it then having you no longer being a part of it.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Hahahahah Larry Herb! What a goon.

  • Aussiesloth

    To be honest I never licked Kinect on 360 but on Xbox One I have found it useful not for hand moment crap but the voice commands work well and just sitting down and it logs you in is a treat.One of the best features is “Xbox Record That ” and I know there’s a lot of people use that and with out Kinect it would be a feature.

    • SmarterThanUObviously

      Surprised to find the PS4 camera has the same capability. “Playstation…Power…Turn off PS4″.

        does not work nearly as good as xbox one

  • PatcherStation

    Come on, Major, get the price down.

    • Jessenia Lopez

      $350 kinectless

      • Demetre HG

        Keep dreaming

        • rehan

          actually kinectless xbox would happen after there deal with the kinect manufacturer ends as a kinect bundle maybe 1 or 2 years later depends on the contract .

          • Blaze Blue

            not going to happen. And there is no reason to leave it out.

      • HalfBlackCanuck

        Never happen and would defeat having it in there in the first place. Arguably it failed since it hasn’t had a killer app yet but, arguably, it would have failed more even if it did have half a dozen dedicated games that worked amazingly for it if it compromised the precious ‘core gamer’ library.
        Its not a failure yet because its underutilized, its only useless once a bunch of broken content is released for it.
        Also, and I’m not saying this is universal, but if it’s garbage why do I keep hearing people cry that the Sony cam is so hard to find? Yes, Xbox is still $40 more expensive all in, but the Kinect has much more potential that the PSEye3.

        • Blaze Blue

          I agree and don’t agree. Kinect did not fail the system is still new.

      • Xtreme Derp

        Try $250-300, that’s about what the hardware’s worth.

        • Eagles83

          You’re just being ridiculous.

        • Blaze Blue

          It’s worth way more than that

      • plcn

        350 would be the magic, with or without kinect. i dont mind that it’s in the box, but it’s too bad it adds so much cost. definitely weird to make everyone buy something that is basically still being prototyped…

    • Demetre HG

      Stfu you whiner

    • Dennis Crosby

      $450 at WalMart in store I bought my nephew one it was the titanfall bundle

      • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

        I feel sorry for your nephew.
